Circles of Learning: Applying Socratic Pedagogy to Learn Modern Leadership
Friesen, Katherine L.; Stephens, Clinton M.
Journal of Leadership Education, v15 n1 p76-85 2016
In response to the National Leadership Education Agenda, this application brief furthers priority one, addressing the teaching, learning, and curriculum development of leadership education. The ability of students to demonstrate leadership outcome mastery in areas of communication, self-awareness, interpersonal interactions, and civic responsibility (Seemiller, 2014), is valued across disciplines. Socratic Circles provide a structured discussion learning strategy based on Socratic pedagogy (Copeland, 2005), beneficial to the practice of leadership outcomes. Discussed are descriptions of implementation methods; outcomes related to Seemiller's (2014) Student Leadership Competencies; and practitioner reflections of the use of Socratic Circles in college level leadership courses.
